The first day of the Fall 2021 semester is Wednesday, August 25, 2021. New student registration begins Monday, June 7, 2021.
As the start of the semester nears, please be aware that course options and seat availability will become more limited. Students should work with the advising team if they are having difficulty finding classes.
Note that additional fees may be assessed when registering for the first time or when making a schedule change during the first week of classes.
Students do not have to meet with an advisor in order to register. However, advisors are available to answer questions about curriculum requirements and assist with registration.
Evening MBA students can attend an advising session to learn more about the curriculum and receive assistance with course registration. Students may also email ZicklinPTMBA@baruch.cuny.edu with any questions and to schedule an appointment with an advisor.
Advising hours are for admitted and matriculated students. For those looking to apply to a degree program at Zicklin, please sign up for one of the webinars hosted by the Office of Graduate Admissions: https://zicklin.baruch.cuny.edu/events/
Students typically register for 6 credits per academic semester and should focus on completing their foundational and functional skills before taking electives. Please note that Evening MBA students can take as many or as few credits as they feel comfortable within a particular semester.
For Fall 2021, students should select from BUS 9558, STA 9708, MGT 9301, and MGT 9600.
Students on an F-1 Visa will need to register for 9 credits to be considered full-time. In addition, students on an F-1 visa are limited to one online course per semester and one hybrid course per semester.
